Mithali Raj: Jhulan's first spell was crucial and then the spinners came and did their job. We were brilliant in the middle overs where we piled on the pressure with a number of dots. Cricket has evolved which makes a team have a number of all-rounders. It's delightful to have 2-3 all rounders in our team. I always enjoy batting and today was no exception."
...
Inoka Ranaweera: "Very disappointed with our performance. We made a lot of mistakes today. Hope to improve in the next game."
...
Deepti Sharma: "The pitch was slow which is why I took some time and played late. I focussed on timing rather than hitting it with power. Time in the gym helped me to hit aerial shots. Enjoyed my bowling too."
